She followed him from behind. As she watched him climb into the bed, tidy the quilt, and cover himself neatly, she could not help sighing in resignation.
She knew that he had straightened out his thoughts, but he needed more time to accept everything.
Indeed, it was harsh to force him into accepting the fact he had to share her love with another child.
Youyou was all along sensible and obedient, and with this knowledge, she sat by the bed and asked tenderly, "Youyou, do you want some warm water?"
"Mm. I want." He pursed his lips.
She hummed in response and lifted the hot water flask at the side. Before she left the room, she specifically requested, "Yichen, do help me take care of Youyou!"
Mu Yichen stole a glance at Yun Tianyou and obediently nodded at her.
She then went out.
Just as the doors clicked shut, Youyou sat up from bed. Yichen was taken aback by this, but once he caught sight of his dark expression, he hurriedly asked, "What's the matter?"
"What do you mean?" His statement baffled him, and he could not grasp what he was trying to imply.
Youyou's eyes deepened and turned frosty. Facing his twin, he asked, "When did you discover that man?"
"Erm… You mean that man who tried to off us?" Yichen raised his brow in question. Realizing that he was indeed talking about that killer, he replied at once, "After we entered the haunted house."
"Didn't he see you?"
"Why did you say that I was his target, then?"
This was too suspicious.
Being together in the haunted house, with his physical appearance resembling Yichen's, especially since that man had followed them inside a place with dim lightings, he should have come across Yichen first.
Youyou remembered Yichen carrying a toy panda earlier while he had nothing in his hands. If this man's target was Yichen, he should be able to differentiate them from their clothes.
Could it be that he was not only targeting him?
With innumerable twists and turns in his mind, Youyou considered numerous different possibilities but dropped them one by one.
Yichen was clueless on what he was thinking of and simply explained with a solemn look, "That's because his target was clear from the start. I don't know when that man started following you two, but, at least, before we entered the haunted house, he's already on your heels! Back then, the toy panda made me noticeable, so when I went in and sensed that someone was following me, I threw it on the ground. However, he didn't even look at it, which meant that he wasn't after me."
"Then, he…" Halfway through his speech, Youyou's orbs shrank and his voice turned eerily cold. "I got it."
"Hm? 'Got' what?" Yichen's curiosity was piqued.
"That man's target, perhaps, wasn't just me." He suddenly felt cold. For all he knew, the man was targeting him and his mother!
Luckily, his mommy was separated from them inside the haunted house. Since he was the man's main target, he would obviously strive to eliminate him first!
He could not help feeling mortified as he continued to ponder on this matter.
His phone rang without warning.
He held up the phone and upon noticing that the caller was Li Hanlin, he promptly answered, "Hello."
"Mr. Yun, are you in the hospital?"
Yun Tianyou immediately climbed off his bed and made his way to the window when he heard his cautious voice.
